Raiders lock up half their 2012 draft class

The Raiders signed defensive ends Jack Crawford and Christo Bilukidi and linebacker Nate Stupar on Thursday. That leaves only three of their 2012 draft class unsigned.
Crawford was the first of Oakland’s two fifth-round draft picks, Bilukidi its sixth-rounder and Stupar the only seventh-rounder. Third-round draftee Tony Bergstrom, fourth-rounder Miles Burris and Juron Criner, the other fifth-rounder, have yet to sign.
The Raiders won’t have any issue signing the remaining three draft picks.

    ===========================================

    Oh Jeeeze…….Brown in the Shotgun, Cry me a “River”s split wide.

    Bartell, Put Mr. Rivers on his A$$ in a hostile manner please.

    I can see it now, the Chargers version of the Wildcat.
    Here it comes folks, the San Diego “Thunder”, the the Ring Ling Brothers- Barnum and Bailey music starts playing and they look like a pile of “Effing” fools.

    If McClain is still playing this season, can someone please tell him to stop doing the Denver Mile High salute after tackles. Thank you.

    Moron.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Why does Denver get sole ownership of a salute?

    Don’t our guys leap into the stands like the Lambeau leap at home? Nobody seems upset by that.

  • morilla

    Because it’s Denver. No other explanation needed.

  • theghostronin79

    Do they even STILL do the Mile High Salute in Denver? I thought it left with Elway, Sharpe, and McCaffrey

  • Just Fire Baby

    Wow, Bryce Harper just f’ing wow!!!

    I can’t remember any 19 year olds peppering 440 foot homers.

  • Just Fire Baby

    If our guys start Tebowing than I will be concerned.

    The Mile High salute was like 15 years ago.

  • theghostronin79

    That’s what I’m sayin

  • theghostronin79

    I’ll look for Huff to be a better Free-lancer than constantly locked up in ‘Man” coverage.

    I doesn’t matter how long ago it was. It’s Denver’s.

    Was it NeilB that said he doesn’t wear his Raider gear in fear of jinxing the team? It might have been Englandraider, anyways, I was doing the same last season. It didn’t work.

    Ironically (or not) the very first Lambeau Leap was done by Leroy Butler after a pick 6 thrown by…Bobby Hoying I wanna say…of the Raiders.

    Its all dry runs. Defense, offense, special teams, two minute, audibles, substitution drills, 4th down teams, being quick, knowing your role. Lots and lots to do without contact.

    Pick up Chad Johnson and drop Louis Murphy ASAP…

    Both Coach Allen & Reggie Mac say they are always looking to upgrade at ALL positions…this is a major upgrade!

    Chad Johnson is a 6 time pro bowler who fits in perfectly with the scheme we will be running this season.

    Johnson and Moore can stretch the field vertically and can make big plays in the passing game.

    DHB is improving, but is not the deep threat Moore or Johnson is…..

    The fact that the Patriots “CLAIM” Johnson didn’t know his playbook only speaks to the laziness of their coaching staff and their ability to Coach up their players….

    It’s time for Coach Belicheat to retire….he is still a quality Coach and one of the best of ALL TIME but this decision to cut #85 was IGNORANT JUDGEMENT on his part…Chad kept his mouth shut, did everything that was asked of him in New England….and for whatever reason…it didn’t work out.

    The kid has fun playing the game, is a hell of a talent, and just needs a young enthusiastic staff to steer him back into form….

    Come on Reggie….pick up the phone and make it happen….

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    Yeah, I agree. Installing the schemes and such.

  • http://.com Dot Com

    Hell, if I was the HC we’d be practicing getting outta the huddle QUICKLY, hustling to the line, quick counts, I’m a big 2 minute drill guy, no huddle. We’d practice every damn scenario. Fast paced. Then after a good day of work we’d practice killing the clock.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Dot Com…you forgot to add shifting into that mix…..but I agree..great post!

  • http://.com Dot Com

    Of course all the practices would be based on the 300 schemes in the playbook of course. Defense would be up and down the field covering all kinds of plays any offense could throw at them. We’d be one well oiled muthafckin machine. Big time. Then we’d be havin a Super Bowl Victory parade in downtown Oakland.

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Fck yeah. Shifts, motions, flea flicker, snap counts that draw teams offsides, tempo and rythyn, no fcking stone goes unturned. Our defense would be designed to disrupt. Take the opposition out of its comfort zone.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Anyone who has ever played football knows these OTA’s don’t mean a dam thing…

    Anyone can play this game without pads on….

    All this media talk about Criner makes me laugh…..I hope the kid brings the goods..don’t get me wrong….but we talking about practice….

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGDBR2L5kzI

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Not just shifting….but sprint shifting….out-manning the defense before they have time to adjust…forcing them to think…..if they are thinking….they are screwed….

    And we shouldn’t never call plays..only concepts…if the defense aligns a certain way in a certain formation…the play is called for us based on the situation…

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Raiders are moving in the right direction..slowly….but they are still behind the curve…

    Hopefully….these new coaches will show me something this season….

    But we’ll see?

    And at times was effective. Would like to see more of it and perfected enough to put up a lot of points. All two minute drills, all the time. Damn!

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    Yep. Hopefully Knapp allows that.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Nah, not all the time…

    But we need 3 different tempo’s to control the clock/situation.

    We need to kick off to start the game and have the ball with an opportunity to score at the end of the half…..

    This gives us an advantage by getting more possessions then our opponent….

    Clock management is a huge AREA of needed improvement from last season….

    Our ball control in the last game against the Chargers prior to halftime was the main reason we lost the game IMO…we were already in field goal range and ran a pass play to Murphy for 6 yards and the clock ran out….

    There is no excuse for these types of mental errors….and we had too many last season….

    When you kickoff to start your 1st pre season game in BOTH the first and second half you know you’re in for a long season…..

    Hopefully we have a staff who can think on the fly..and can adjust…if we don’t…doesn’t matter who our players are…..the COACHING is what needs to improve…and by coaching I MEAN GAMEDAY DECISIONS!

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    All this OTA and practice doesn’t mean all that much if we don’t have men/COACHES who know FOOTBALL…and not basic knowledge…but the type of forward thinking which forces the opponent to REACT to something…

    Then, we need to be able to anticipate those reactions so as to take advantage in certain area’s….

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    I’m still not sold on Palmer being a perfect fit for the scheme we are going to run this season….not mobile enough and he didn’t perform well last season when he turned his back to the defense….

    But I’ll give Coach Knapp a little rope and see what he can do….but my instincts tell me that our passing game is going to be ineffective….

    I hope to God I’m wrong…

    Well with the coaches all on the same page from the get go, should help that aspect of the game day game.

    For my first comments on this site: The starting wrs should be as follows: Moore-DHB-Ford(slot). If criner proves to be a starter, then he replaces DHB! Trade DHB for a position needed. DHB is not a slot receiver and has trade value. NEVER,NEVER put his name in the same sentence as Cliff Branch! Let it be a lineup of fifth rnd draft choices tht produce. Moore runs the best routes, Ford runs better with the ball in hand(slot), and Criner just may have the best hands(possesion). DHB has hands of stone and does not run good routes. He is getting better but considering where we drafted him, he is getting every chance in the world. He to has been injured. Ford can and has taken over a game because he cant be covered frm the slot one on one. He is the poor man’s DeSean Jackson/Steve Smith tht can battle for the ball then poof TD! OK ok, I gotta calm down. Im a newby,but Palmer is talking these guys up for a reason.

    Huff has not performed like a 1st rounder. He must have left his hitn tackln skills in Texas! While I miss Al(RIP), the draft did suffer in judgement. Jamarcus over Calvin(Megatron?)Coach Kiffin and Coach Chuckie must have some interesting phone conversations. Im just sayn….

    Palmer is the best QB we have had since Gannon/Plunkett. We gave up a 1st and second. OK, the deal breaker was the 3rd for Pryor!(thks AL)THT one better work out. Addition by subtraction- the defensive coordinator was OFFENSIVE! Who hired him?!?! Im just sayn…(Marcus Allen, Tim Brown, Warren Sapp,Rich Gannon, etc…they all had a common issue wth management…its like talkn bad aBOUT the king of pop!
